Best Irelia Runes

Best Items for Your Irelia Build

The best items to include in your Irelia build include: Goredrinker, Guardian Angel, Sterak's Gage, and Blade of The Ruined King. Additionally, as with our rune builds, you can also find great, dedicated, Irelia item builds farther down for the particular enemy team composition you are playing in your current game.

Guide to Playing with Irelia

  • Harass enemy champions by casting Bladesurge on a dying minion before going in.
  • Transcendent Blades let you siphon life from enemies while you are running away; this lets you gain your health back and potentially return to a fight if desired.
